In the television news business stories are filed by what we call a “slug.” For example a new development announced for Hartford might be slugged “Hartford development,” or perhaps, “new hotel.” Years later, the slug might be so generic it is hard to determine what the story is about until you watch it.
Such was the case when I was going through tapes in the archives and stumbled across “Trump Game” followed by a JV handwritten on a tape from 1990. JV referred to a Channel 3 legendary reporter from the 80s and 90s, Jim Vicevich, but I had no clue as to what Trump Game could possible mean, but I was intrigued.
Turns out, it was just that. Donald Trump had a new game out that bore his name. He went to the Milton Bradley factory in Longmeadow, Massachusetts and Vice covered it.
